Question about Curtis RT700 7 in. Portable Television

1 Answer

Has anyone else had this problem?

My 7" portable Curtis TV suddenly caught on fire while I was watching it! Lucky I was right there to unplug it or it could have been very serious. It is 18 months old,of course out of warrenty,but this is an extremely dangerous problem!!

    I noticed a strange burning smell and then the TV went dead.  The power light was still on but the TV was dead.  Got nervous about the smell and pulled the plug.

I bought the same tv about a year ago. I noticed that the power adapter gets very hot when plugged into the electrical outlet so I unplug it after watching tv. Better to be safe than sorry.

Since this Curtis RT700 TV is analog, is there an adapter available to make it digital usable?

Yes,the analoge tv must hook through a box that called a Digital Converter box to get a Free AIR DTV broadcasting tvs channels signals.These Digital Converter boxes are no longer on sale by those regular big boxes stores like Walmart or Target.Tries webites like, to a Digital Converter box for any analoge tvs to uses.

Watching dvd, great pictue and all of a sudden black out

7 Blinks is the failure of the SC/SU/SD PCB's (1 2 or 3 depending on how lucky/unlucky) you are.

Panasonic have a great warranty usually. Give them a ring, it has failed.

The flashing LED is the fault code.

What is the tv code so i can program my remote

Your TV code is different for every REMOTE brand. Make sure of the brand and use their code. If you can't find the code, buy a universal remote for $5 to $7 and use supplied codes. Hope this helps.

Digital tuner adapter

All of us that own this pint-size tv will experience the same problem come Feb. 2009. The only solution is to purchase a digital tuner adapter and "adapt".
